My name is Kathleen. In November of 2008, I was laid off from my job as a Financial Controller. This wasn't a bad thing as I was tired of the corporate world and longed to do my own thing. I thought about all the toys that end up in landfills and how that could be changed. I have loved toys since my kids were little and my kids had lots. If I could fix and clean the once loved toys, I could bring them back to life and make another child love that same toy, even 20 years later. I had thought about this back when my son was born over 25 years ago in 1985. I longed to buy used toys from a store instead of hunting them down at yard sales and the like. Most of the time, all they needed was a little TLC.
So I started shopping. I learned where to shop and what to buy. For the most part, I shop at thrift stores, yard sales, and sometimes Craigs List. I buy toys and lots of them. I bring them home and then the work begins. I clean them inside and out. I use a lot of Ajax, Bleach, Vinegar, Magic Eraser, Scrubbies, Sponges, Goo Off, WD40, Plastic Gloves, Scrub Brushes, Dawn, and good old Simple Green. I order any missing parts from Little Tikes, Fisher Price, and Step 2. I fix anything I can and if I can't fix it, my husband can. He is very supportive of my business. He enjoys toys almost as much as I do. Then I search on the web for the exact name of the product (if I haven't seen it before) and recent sales of it. I take pictures, write an ad, list it on Craigs List and my website, and then meet with shoppers. It does take up a whole lot of time! But it's okay because my motto is:
LOVE WHAT YOU DO AND DO WHAT YOU LOVE!
I specialize in top brands that are made to last: Little Tikes, Step 2, Fisher Price, Today's Kids, Kettler, Radio Flyer and occasionly other brands if I believe they are of good quality.
All toys are given the TLC they deserve and you want.
